View India 18 - 19 on bruceontour's travel map.

Now 3.30pm / 15:30 and it was back across town by tuk tuk to see the World’s Smallest Miniature Painting.

I simply don’t have the steady hand to even try something like this. Shiv Swami demonstrated his craft. Yes, I was fascinated.

Shiv held in 2002 and 2003 the Guinness world record for the world's smallest painting.

Can you see “Bruce in India”, 9 trees, 6 birds and the 3 temples on my nail and rather dried finger? I had to use a magnifying glass to see the fine detail in this magnificent art form.
